Elasticsearch has now become a reality!


Today is the day we are releasing one of the biggest modules in thirty bees history. A module that is full of new technology, technology we'd love to see more in the future. Elasticsearch is one of them. For those of you not familiar with Elasticsearch, it is a search engine that can rapidly search through your collection and provide results in milliseconds. Add to this the extremely fast frontend search we have built for the module and you have millisecond search in your store! This module is the first crowdfunded module for thirty bees. The campaign ended in August and [...]

Statistics Modules


If you have spent any time in our Slack or Gitter then you know there is one thing that drives me crazy, the number of modules it takes to run a thirty bees shop. There are so many modules that are not needed as separate modules. This clutters the page in my opinion and helps to scare off new users. At the same time it makes things harder to find. Do you edit this address in the Block Contact module? The Block Contact Infos? Or is it on the Preferences Store Contacts page? To me, this is just insane. This crowds [...]

Elasticsearch: the beta continues


The second beta of the Elasticsearch module is now available! We noticed that the first beta was too hard to configure to make it run on most systems so we have worked very hard to support a multitude of systems via the ajax proxy option. This makes the module work out-of-the-box on Cloudways (thirty bees cloud) for example. Together with support for more systems we have added tons of features, finally making the module feature-complete with the second beta. Let's not keep you waiting, here is a short video of what a fully configured search page of the module looks [...]

New module Piwik Analytics


We are happy to announce we have released a native integration with Piwik open analytics platform.  This module will allow our users to interface their thirty bees sites with Piwik to provide quick and accurate analytics, while at the same time owning all the analytics data. Some of our users have expressed that they do not trust Google with all of their data. Whether this believe is founded or not, we have decided that we need another analytics integration with thirty bees. Now our users have a choice on which analytics platform they want to use with their thirty bees site. [...]

Elasticsearch module beta


We are proud to announce that our Indiegogo funded Elasticsearch module is now stable enough to be beta tested by our community. If you have a development version of your site and would like to provide feedback on the module, we need you. I would like to say again, this module is a beta version, it is not stable enough for and does not have the all the features you will need in production. That being said, lets get to testing. What is Elasticsearch? In case you haven't been following the search topics on the forum and our Indiegogo project, Elasticsearch is [...]

Three new cache modules just released


We have been some busy bees here lately at thirty bees. Today we are adding three new modules to our growing list of core modules. By now most users know that we focus a great deal on performance at thirty bees. The new modules are no exception to that. They are managers for the most popular server side caching systems that thirty bees users use. The three modules are Memcache Manager, Opcache Manager, and APCu Cache Manager. The new modules are not for increasing performance in your shop per se, they are to help you manage the caching system that you [...]

New module JSON+LD


We are happy to announce we have released a new JSON+LD module this morning. This module has been tested very thoroughly, but is still being released as a beta and it is not in your module feed. There is a download link at the end of this blog post if you want to download and test the module out. So what is JSON+LD? JSON+LD stands for JavaScript Object Notation for Linked Data. That doesn't explain much does it? I am sure you are familiar with rich snippets though aren't you? JSON+LD is the new format for replacing microdata rich snippets. Most [...]

thirty bees module store


We just thought we would give everyone in the community a quick update about our module store and a little bit more information about it. The work on the store is progressing along quite nicely and we are going to be able to launch the store soon. We have planned on launching the store in two phases, so we can Q&A check and also check for any kind of bugs. Phase one The first phase of the launch is going to be free modules only. This way we can get feedback from both the community and the module developers as to [...]

Crowdfunding Modules


There has been a lot of talk on our forum about crowdfunding of modules lately. We have decided that we would like to try the idea out. We look at it as a way for the community to help us further the mission of thirty bees in providing the best possible ecommerce software for free. While at the same time helping choose the direction of thirty bees. Over the last week we have been discussing how to handle this and which module to choose to try this system out. We have had lots of suggestions for different modules, so we [...]
